Maricopa’s Native Grill and Wings will remain closed four to six more weeks, according to Adriana Espinosa, corporate spokesperson, on Monday.
What was described as a small hood fire occurred about 2 a.m. Jan. 13 at the restaurant and it closed the popular Maricopa eatery immediately. Initially, Espinosa said the company had hoped to reopen their store in two to six weeks but, as the investigation and repairs continue, it could be much longer than planned.
A post on the Native Grill Facebook page Monday stated the goal is now March 1.
Espinosa said they hope to be open sooner but it could take up to six additional weeks to repair the damages even if it was a small fire.
“Until then, we are inviting all of our guests to visit any of our other 20 locations in the Phoenix area,” she said. “The closest location would be our Ray Road location on Ray Road and I-10. However, the owner of the Maricopa location also owns the Dobson/Guadalupe location.”
